CPI(M) rubbishes Trinamool charge

Staff Reporter



Biman Bose

KOLKATA: The Trinamool Congress' rigging charge does not fit in with party chief Mamata Banerjee's claim that they will secure nearly 170 of the 179 seats where polling has been held in the three phases of the West Bengal Assembly elections, said State Left Front Committee chairman Biman Bose here on Wednesday.

Even as Mr. Bose applauded the spirit of the people of North and South 24 Parganas districts and Kolkata “who ensured that the polls are held peacefully and without interruption despite many provocations”, he said that because of disturbances in two constituencies – Bijpur and Haroa in North 24 Parganas districts – the Left Front has called for a re-poll at 37 booths.

“Our polling agents were not allowed to work freely in these areas,” alleged Mr. Bose, who is also State Secretary of the Communist Party of India (Marxist). Despite “a huge security arrangement, these areas were not properly manned”, he pointed out.

He said that once elections in all the six phases in 294 seats are over and the results are declared on May 13, “it will be as clear as daylight that despite all that is being said of ‘change' there will be no doubt that the eighth Left Front government will be coming to power. This is the reality; it is just a question of time”.

Asked to comment on allegations of rigging in some areas, particularly within Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee's constituency of Jadavpur, Mr Bose said that the charges of rigging did not gel with Ms. Banerjee's claims that they will win a majority of the seats.
